Since both Southgate College and Enfield College stopped running language courses for adults there has been a gap in the market for language learners who don't want to travel too far.

Since this January the gap has been plugged, as far as Italian is concerned, by a new language school based in Palmers Green.  During its first term Parla Italiano courses attracted much interest and a new class for beginners is due to start on 15th April at the United Reformed Church in Burford Gardens, on the corner with Fox Lane, at 7.30pm.

laura scaramellaThe new language school is run by Laura Scaramella, an experienced teacher and teacher trainer.  She set up Parla Italia in 2006, since when she's worked with clients all over London.  However, she now has two young children and needs to be available to them.  For this reason she has decided to work closer to home - in Palmers Green and nearby areas. 

Laura believes that in order to learn one needs to be motivated and also to have fun in class. She offers group lessons which are interactive and uses games and activities to make it fun for the students and at the same time effective. All skills (speaking, listening, writing and reading) are developed, giving students plenty of practice from lesson one.

If you have thought of learning something new in 2015 there is an opportunity on 15th April, just after Easter. There are still some places available for the free trial class at 7.30. To book please email . This class is for complete beginners.
